Tinkering With Tomorrow

February 29, 2012 12:15 pm to 5:00 pm

New technologies are making it easier than ever to turn an idea into a reality. 3D printers, open-source software, hackable products, and collaborative communities have turned traditional tinkering into a full-scale “maker movement” that allows – and encourages – everyone to tap into their inner entrepreneur. Can this movement usher in a new age of innovation? Will hackers have a profound impact on the economy? And if so, are we prepared for it?

CIS Affiliate Scholar Marvin Ammori will be participating in the panel "Can Our Patent System Support (or Survive) the DIY Movement?"

Event is overcapacity but a live webcast will be available.
